"When you’re fresh out of school, it's hard to know what you want to do with your career. The MDP Program helped solve that confusion for me. Three different rotations in two years taught me how to learn and adapt quickly, expand my skillset, make meaningful relationships across the business and create amazing friendships. The program showed me my passion for marketing communications and through that I was able to land a job exactly there."

Risha Raythatha, 2020 MDP - Marketing Manager

"The TELUS MDP Program kickstarted my career in the best way possible. It gave me the opportunity to not only try three different job functions, but experience three extremely contrasting areas of the business. I learned to be adaptable and resilient by striving to make the most out of my time on each team, skills I know will take me far in my career."

Jude Arafeh, 2020 MDP - Strategy Manager

"The value of the MDP lies within the people that this program is run by, everyone around you - be it Managers, Directors, VPs, all want you to succeed in your career and achieve great things.

The MDP provided me with an array of opportunities to explore different roles across the organization, spanning from strategy, to marketing, and product/project management. The skills I was able to gain throughout each rotation are invaluable as I prepare for the next step in my career."

Eric Jin Cheng, MDP 2021
